Photo Album Storage
Hi Idea Room readers! It’s Becky, Clean Mama, and I’m back today with another Organizational Tip to help you organize your home. If you have a clutter spot or recurring clutter, think about grouping “like” items (like bills and mail, photos, scrapbooking, sewing, or craft supplies) together in a designated area.
I took an antique commode that was holding miscellaneous papers and turned it into photo album storage. Here’s what I did:
empty all contents
sort (keep, toss, give away)
lined the cabinet and drawer with scrapbook paper
I used wrapping paper and made a template to line the drawer and cupboard
I grouped the photo albums together in the cabinet
the drawer is for holding photos that need to be put in the albums
I love this solution because all the photo albums are in one place, accessible and I can add photos to the albums easily.
Do you have a clutter spot that could benefit from some grouping of like items?
